Pre-Employment Assessments

Based on the unique patient population and challenges in each job, you are required to pass a health assessment as a condition of employment. Your offer of employment is contingent upon successful completion of pre-employment screenings, including but not limited to background checks, education and employment verifications, licensure verification and health assessment.

Your Offer of Employment is contingent upon successful completion of the following:

  1. New Teammate Onboarding in CORE Connect – Access your new teammate onboarding checklist tasks.
  2. Health Assessment – Know what to expect at your new teammate health assessment, including the paperwork you may need to bring with you.
    • Note: You may be required to take your teammate badge photograph at that time.
